Welcome to the Stalag VIII-B discussion board. My father was imprisoned in this camp and passed away on 4 July 2017 at the age of 95. After surviving an air crash in a Wellington bomber on a mountain during a blizzard, see www.buckdenpike.co.uk, he was then shot out of his plane some months later on a bombing raid over Germany and ended up as a PoW at Stalag VIII-B. He nearly died on the appalling Lamsdorf Death March. These events have inspired me to set this board up.
